Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI) announced at the Small Satellite Conference at Utah State University shipment of the 45th Gaia 100 compact ground station, to one of its twelve Earth Observation/New Space Gaia customers — less than four years after delivery of the initial system
Orbit Communications Systems provides satellite-tracking ground-station solutions and airborne and maritime communications.
The rapid growth within the demanding EO and New Space segments has furthered Orbit’s approach to ground stations — a modular range of reliable, high-performance tracking terminals for MEO and LEO constellations that are lighter, simpler to install and operate, with an attractive cost.
A lightweight robust, low-loss radome provides environmental protection and, combined with less overall mass and a small footprint, permits installations in harsh conditions and on a broader range of existing buildings and structures.
Stav Gizunterman, Senior VP Business Development & Marketing at Orbit said that they are really pleased with how quickly the Gaia system has been adapted by a very creative and progressive customer base. The fresh, modular design and level of orders has helped standardize and accelerate their processes, from manufacturing to commissioning, and they are uniquely able to ship pre-configured, pre-tested systems that can be installed and in service in just two or three days.
